republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we will have another budget fiscal fight ahead but instead of it being over the debt ceiling, which a default would have been cataclysmic for the government or a government shutdown, this is an ability to be over the terrain of the budget process, normal give and take between the house, the senate, the white house coming in. and a probably more functional way to reduce spending and also get the fiscal house in order rather than having it attached to the debt ceiling fight. >> thank you very much, mark. see you in d.c. for the inauguration. and have a great weekend, buddy. >> you, too. >>> up next from manti te'o's high hopes to lance armstrong admitting he's lied to us for years, should the scandals mat tore the men and women in washington? why they say d.c. lawmakers should be concerned about those two stories. at 1:45, the aflac duck was brought in with multiple lacerations to the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful

against the debt ceiling, these people that he is suggest want the country to go into default are doing the same thing when he was a senator, he changed his mind. absolutely not. did he vote against. he has spoken to that that was a political vote answered has learned from that but at the time, congress wasn't threatening to say we are not going to pay our bills unless we get what we want, deeper cuts in medicare than required or tank the economy. this false equivalence needs to stop. the barrier to progress here is not the president. we need more republicans in congress to think like republicans in the country who are seeking compromise, seeking balance, because we are poised here to really grow. if washington can do its part and not get in the way, our economies continue to grow, we can make big progress. >> this a president we are going to see, hey, he is reaching out more than he did in the second term or is this a president who largely has said, no, i need a larger army. i need to use my campaign machinery and rally the people who voted for me behind causes? which president are we going to see? >> not an either/or. obviou
